Even though tonight's episode of The Office is a rerun, you can get some more info on the world
of Jim, Michael, Pam & Dwight in this article posted earlier this month. The Production Manager and Director of
Photography go a bit into what it takes to shoot and produce each episode of the show.
As some of our commenters continually remind us, in Europe the TV shows have long been in widescreen, and that was part of the reason they kept shooting it that way for the show here (you hear that Scrubs?).
